The food is delicious. It's a small, cozy place with not your normal meals. I think ownership has recently changed, but I have noticed only small details to indicate a change. A little pricey, but atmosphere is cozy!

Meauxbar is on Rampart, which is now enjoying a renaissance due to the new streetcar. This is a great looking spot, very polished speakeasy, which led me to give it a shot. Service was average, which is not saying alot as we were the only people in there. The music was kind of club techno, which did not fit the... More

My wife and I were in NOLA over a Saturday night. We didn't reserve a dinner table early and the restaurant recommendations we had gotten could not seat us until much too late. I did an internet search found the Meauxbar with a table at a reasonable time and decided to give it a try. We were delighted. The food... More

My wife and I arrived at Meauxbar on 10/24/2016 on time for our 5:30pm reservation. We were seated promptly. Then, a young man with brown hair and a brown beard introduced himself as our server. He began to tell us in detail about dishes we inquired about and this was well received by us as we were looking to enjoy... More

Without a booking, we lucked in with Meauxbar after a few hours in Congo Park across the street listening to free jazz. The pork belly and crunchy scallops dish was fabulous. The bar staff were very obliging when I asked for a Mint Julep which wasn't on the menu. Quite dark and noisy but it all added to the vibe.

We had a great dinner at Meauxbar, the food was very good, creative contemporary french with local touches. We actually liked it better that the "big names" of the FQ ( such as Bayona). Highly recommended

FOOD-INCREDIBLE! SERVICE- Great! ATMOSPHERE- Wonderful! We arrived for a Sunday night dinner at 6:30. Seating was immediate and the vibe was great. They have a small but interesting menu. The problem was that they were out of many to most of the dinner items. According to our server, the night before was their busiest night, ever! They sold out which... More

Meauxbar Bistro is a small intimate local restaurant featuring some of the best food in New Orleans. The menu is limited, but every dish is done to perfection. I was a little disappointed in that they were out of some of our choices, but the food we had was utterly outstanding. Forget the French Quarter - too much noise and... More

I had the bone marrow side - really good. The salad special for the day. Good but overdressed. Also had the sweetbreads small plate. Also pretty good. My husband had the scallops that was a large plate. Also pretty good. We split the cheese plate for dessert. This place is just on the edge of the French Quarter on Rampart,... More

Description
Located on a picturesque corner of the Vieux Carre, Meauxbar is a vibrant neighborhood gem. A typical evening finds an eclectic mix of French Quarter residents, locals from across the city, as well as out of town visitors. Accessible and smart, with a unique worldview, our food and beverage menus are reflected in locally-inspired, modern bistro fare created by Chef Kristen Essig.

Our menu rotates seasonally, though some classics remain throughout: Escargot in Bone is a guest favorite when paired with an Herbsaint luge. Pork Belly and Scallops is a rich and hearty starter. Our Hanger Steak with Frites and Bearnaise appeals to those in search of a Bistro classic, while our Lamb Loin with Golden Raisins perfectly exemplifies Chef Essig's vision and style. Rooted in the old world, we offer wine by the glass, carafe, and bottle. Guests will see many familiar varietals as well as some more unique and off-beat selections.

Our core philosophy is centered around the whole dining experience: great food and service, memorable moments, culture, warmth, energy, and a celebratory feel. We want to be a part of our guests' lives.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
